    Hello Passion....I'm not what you call the most tech savvy person in the world....but you MIGHT try download.com. There are many free downloadables there, but I can't be quite sure that photoshop is one of them. Sometimes basic versions of a program are available, but then you have to pay for advanced features. Anyhoo....good luck..

    what is your intended use?

    adobe software is tightly controlled. i don't think U can get it for free.
    you can get Elements for under $100. that has most of the functionality.
    you can get full photoshop with a valid student ID as a student copy at about $250.
    i got mine from acdemicsuperstore.com

    Like james said, it's very hard to get it without paying something. There are ways to download it, but it's illegal even though they provide legit serial numbers and programs. The best way is just to buy it if you have the money, because downloading it illegally is a risk. I think the serial numbers load themselves everytime the program is opened and Adobe can tell in duplicate serial numbers are being used (if you are connected to the internet). I'm not sure, but that's what I've heard. Especially with programs that are used to create websites. You can get Limewire from download.com and then use Limewire to download photoshop, but it's not legal....so you ain't heard that from me. Best bet....just buy it from Adobe or go to Best Buy or something. At least you don't have to worry about getting caught for being a software pirate.

    full photoshop is not "messin around" stuff. it is a professional tool. retail is up to $700.
    i signed up for a course at my community college, got a valid ID and copped with that ID.

    if U wanna play, get Elements.
